What are the Benefits of Paxton10?

Ok, lets all be honest we would all like to save time in business as this means we can free ourselves up to help more clients and time = money!  Paxton10 can help you combine lots of processes together and you can have them all on just one system.

Paxton10 is great for:

  • 1000 Doors – You can add up to 1000 Doors to the system.
  • 1000 Cameras – If your business has lots of cameras or your looking to add them to your premise – you can add up to 1000.
  • Bluetooth smart Credentials – Make your system more accessible to to users.
  • Compatible with PaxLock & Entry ranges.
  • Fire & Intruder alarm integration.
  • Modular systems.

Why do I need it?

Access control and IP cameras regularly co-exist in the same buildings yet are rarely integrated due to the complexity. Paxton10 combines both technologies to remove the complexity and deliver the benefits of an integrated solution.

Access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible, and cost-effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed.

Video management provides surveillance of your site, increasing the security of your building without complicated integrations.

Combining these two solutions into a single, user-friendly system makes managing the security of your site much simpler. The range of free Paxton apps are also available to help you access your security system from a smartphone or tablet.


How does it work?

Once access control and video management has been installed you can manage who has access to your building and when, from the same software that provides video footage of what happens on site.

All doors on the system will lock automatically and will only open when an authorised access token is presented. Should a forced entry attempt be made, the surveillance cameras will capture the event and alert the system administrator. Just a note to remember a Paxton10 system requires the use of a Paxton10 Server.


The System

Paxton10’s modular, one door controller architecture provides a cost-effective solution that supports camera and door management from a single controller. One server can support up to 1000 doors across multiple sites. One controller is required for each door on the system. One to four third party IP cameras can be controlled from a single video controller.

The Paxton10 cameras, server and controllers require zero configuration, making installation perfectly simple.

The web user interface and free Paxton Connect app offer remote access to the Paxton10 system from anywhere in the world.

Example of Paxton10 System


Paxton10 integrates with fire and intruder alarms to simplify building management. It is easy to control and monitor the state of alarms within the Paxton10 user interface.
